Jocelyn Robinson is a Yellow Springs, OH-based educator, independent media producer, and radio preservationist.
She holds a BA in Art History from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio and a Master’s in Cultural Studies with a concentration in Race, Gender, and Identity from Antioch University. In 2015 she earned a graduate certificate in Public History with a focus on Archives Administration, also from Wright State. Since 2007, she has taught transdisciplinary literature courses for Antioch University which incorporate critical cultural theory and her research interests in self-definition and identity.
Trained through WYSO’s Community Voices program in 2013, Jocelyn served as the station’s first Archives Fellow, producing Rediscovered Radio, short documentaries using WYSO’s civil rights era audio as source material. The series received state and national honors, and she was recognized with a 2014 New Voices Scholar Award from the Boston-based Association of Independents in Radio (AIR). Her most recent project, Senior Voices, was a year-long celebration of elders in Dayton, OH. She also trains others to claim their own narratives through digital storytelling.
Jocelyn is engaged with national radio preservation efforts and serves on the African American and Civil Rights Radio Caucus of the Radio Preservation Task Force, a project of the Recorded Sound Preservation Board at the Library of Congress. She was recently awarded a National Recording Preservation Foundation grant to survey the archival holdings of HBCU radio stations, a project that will run throughout 2019.
